I'll keep it brief, because to be honest I'm already in vacation mode and there is so much to be done between now and Saturday that I'm both simultaneously exalted and exhausted. This post is a bit more scatter-brained than what you may be used to but I've been thinking a lot and its the best way I know how to put those thoughts out into the universe, to start cultivating a deeper consciousness, spreading good vibes, self awareness and love. I've been thinking about those things too.Read More
The side hustle is grueling.
The people who tell you its easy are lying. Because behind every perfectly polished article, picture, video, social media account or website, is a pile of mess ups, mix ups and pardon my french, but honestly, fuck ups lying on the cutting room floor that simply didn't make the big screen.Read More
Here's the thing about inspiration.
It's illusive A.F.
I can't tell you how many times I've gone out seeking that one thing to inspire me.

And sure, you could commit to signing up for more yoga classes, squeezing in more cardio, saying no to the carbs or eating more salad. In fact, I think you absolutely should incorporate those things into an overall commitment to live a healthier lifestyle if that's one of your 2018 goals.
But that's not all.Read More
I raise up my voice—not so I can shout, but so that those without a voice can be heard...we cannot succeed when half of us are held back. ― Malala Yousafzai

Every year, as soon as a chill hits the air, the Halloween decorations start popping up in stores and we start pulling out the winter gear, I get this feeling of nostalgia. You see, fall and winter is such a magical time for me. Little kids in their cutie Halloween costumes, the holidays, Thanksgiving with the family, cutting down our Christmas tree, toasty nights spent by the fire, sweaters, hot chocolate, snuggling up with the dogs watching The Grinch. I love all of it, everything about it, always have.Read More
When you're young, you think your invincible.
Sometimes you drive too fast, or drink too much or make the wrong choice because you can.
You never think it's going to catch up with you, and most of the time it doesn't.

I'm a millennial. And damn proud of it. There, I said it.
I'm not ashamed. I don't deny it. And I don't mind being defined by it. It's a part of who I am.
